I know, you’re probably thinking you haven’t blogged in months and this is the recipe you come back with? Granola? Yes, granola. When it comes to food, I thrive on variety. In spite of the ease of it, I will never be one of those people that eats the same breakfast or lunch everyday. I’m always trying new recipes and rarely even make the same dinner twice in one month. If I come back to a recipe repeatedly, you know it’s a good one. I’ve been making this granola for years now and lately it’s become a weekly thing. This granola is also one of the only things that everyone in our family will eat.
The granola is easy to make (ie minimal dishes), infinitely versatile, and a million times better than anything you can buy at the store. If your pantry is stocked like ours, you can also make it with things you have on hand, eliminating any special grocery shopping trips. The granola is a great way to jazz up yogurt (or this coconut chia pudding) and parfaits, but also is good enough to stand alone with a bit of milk. Some people in our family even eat it by the fistful straight out of the jar.
